We enjoyed seeing the countryside, villages, and friendly people along the drive. Some of the stops were very staged and were there for the hard sell at their shops, so be prepared to purchase overpriced trinkets and cigars, or have a very firm ability to decline. Also, have plenty of pesos to tip the various guides (horseback, cathedral guide, etc). Our driver, Jesus was fabulous and accommodating. Overall the excursion was worth it, but take lots of extra $$$.

Amazing tour full of information and sights of the country and people of the Dominican Republic. Our tour guide Angel was very interesting to speak with. Lots of knowledge about information of the people and country. We fell very comfortable with Angel and spoke amazing clear English. His personal life story was so interesting to hear and when asked where I was from he was familiar with Canada Newfoundland slang. When we return to the Dominican we will do this tour again or similar and request Angel as the guide. The driver Robert provide a safe comfortable ride and was friendly and helpful when stopped at sites. They constantly supply cold bottles of ice water. This is a must do tour and make sure to ask for Angel for the true Dominican Republic experience of history, country and people

While the trip/tour was informative and Manny "Bla bla bla bal" (yes that's what he wanted us to call him) was very educated, but he repeated himself a lot. He did his best to make the time between location enjoyable The trip is listed as going to Macao Beach which it did not, this was a big disappointment as we wanted our daughter to see this very beautiful beach. The tour of Mary's place was super informative and the food was good. We have taken better "countryside" tours in the past, but COVID-19 could have closed these down. Over all it was a solid day.

The tour company decided to come and leave our resort earlier than expected and agreed. Called to check on us, but left anyway. Lied about how long driver waited. We’ve toured all over the world and never had this experience. No refund. No service. Next time I will reserve a private tour or arrange excursion through our resort to avoid this problem. We have a large group returning for a celebration and have close family with travel agency geared toward girls trips and family reunions. I was scouting tour companies during this event for both purposes and will promptly discard this company.

We booked this tour hoping to learn more about how the locals live, farm, eat etc. Angel did a wonderful job! He was patient with all our questions and enthusiastic about the tour. It was obvious he enjoyed what he does and that made the tour even more enjoyable for us. He also had a wide range of knowledge he shared with us and it was very nice to hear the love he has for this beautiful country! Very good job Angel! You are an awesome tour guide and Nathan was an excellent driver on those curvy hilly roads. Thankyou!
Also the meal was delicious too!

We were staying at the Barcelo Bavaro Beach-Adult Side/Premium Level in Punta Cana. We booked this tour at the recommendation of our Delta Vacations Representative - Wendys.
Ruddy was our guide; Elvis our driver. Both were top notch. It was a real "behind the scenes" look at how life is lived in the Dominican Republic away from the tourist/resort areas. Ruddy's running commentary about the various areas we traveled through as well as information about the economy, employment, family life, education and healthcare added much appreciated "nuggets" to help round out the experience. The "Runners" organization also uses a portion of what we pay to help with the education and some expenses for poorer children in the area. What a great way to "give back".
The vehicle we traveled in was open-air and had a stiff, truck like ride. However, based on where we traveled this was needed. I would highly recommend this tour and this guide/driver combination. One of the most enjoyable parts of our visit to the Dominican Republic.

My wife and I were staying at Hyatt Zilara and had booked a tour through another company. We were cancelled at last minute with no notice but were able to book with Bavaro Runners through the hotel. Darius (guide) and driver JC arrived right on time and immediately began our countryside tour. Darius was able to tell us all about his country in a way that was both entertaining and informative. The tour included a cigar rolling exhibition, a trip to Higuey with a bacilica tour. Tour and lunch at a Dominican home and so much more. We would definitely recommend.

We really enjoyed our trip with Melo and Emilio. Yes, it may not all be completely authentic and exactly as the description of the trip but it is nice to get out of the resort area to see the urban city of Higuey and the more rural setting owned by the Runners group. We did learn a lot about the culture, the education system and how the locals live. We did see a man roll a cigar, and yes, there was a shop to purchase alcohol and cigars for cheaper than the hotel prices. You will get a free cigar to light, a sample of pineapple wine, Mamajuana and rum by the river. They will also give you bottled water. The vehicle is rough and there is no distancing or mandatory mask-wearing, if you are concerned about covid protocols. The cathedral in Higuay is amazing. The lunch at Maria's was 2 types of chicken, rice and macaroni salad. She serves pineapple and starfruit from her trees in the garden. You also sample fresh tea and hot cacao. You can purchase many natural cosmetic products here as well. You may want to take bug spray on this trip. We really loved our tour!

The tour guide, Emilio was absolutely amazing, he shared so much information about the culture and customs in the Dominican, really gave you the opportunity to learn. The meal at Maria's house was fabulous! The tours in the sugar cane, coca, coffee and cigar making areas were really neat. Freddy, our driver was awesome too, kept us hydrated and was kind and prompt. The only complaint I have is that the safari truck was very full so you are in very close proximity with many people.
